“Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.”
~ Joseph Campbell ~
If you were given a chance to make some changes in your life right now what would they be?
What if you have no choice in the matter? What if someone or some event forced you to make changes.
For most some major reassessment may be required. There may be a sense of loss and sadness. There may be fear. There may be anger.
We may be forced to make an adjustment or two to the trajectory of our lives. We may need to completely rebuild.
We need to start asking ourselves some very important questions.
- What are the most important things required for me to live a full and happy life?
- How will I conduct my life?
- What are my goals?
- How do I want to live the remainder of my life?
Many times this forced redo comes at a time when there are less years ahead than there are behind. All the more important to really be honest with ourselves.
Here are a few of my own requirements:
A great deal of effort is made by many trying to understand the why. You may never know why. You may never get the answer you’re looking for. So focus on what you can do. Focus on the redo, the rebuild and the journey ahead.
